The SVH Beach Bar is no more.
Sri Lanka’s Min. of Defense CCD department did not like our approach to provide entertainment for foreign visitors on the beach front.
It was demolished end 2011. And now the beach front looks like this, below.
We have given up any further improvements for the time being.
We had. In the past. But NO MORE!
We estimate this old wooden Bar made more than 10,000 visitors happy with the facilities we provided. During the years right after the 2004 Tsunami up to end 2011.
Foreign press coverage and many blogs show that the Surf comp. finals, the football world cup, and many mellow parties all centered around this Arugam Bay landmark.
We believe this is what visitors come to a tropical island for.
Now we are disillusioned, and will no more invest into any new structures.
Due to Government rules.
